Design suggestions for posters

  • Use a crisp and clean design.
  • All lettering should be legible from about 1,5 m away.
  • Make illustrations simple and bold. Enlarge photos, tables, and charts to show pertinent details clearly.
  • Do not tell the entire research history. Present only enough data to support your conclusions and show the originality of the work.
  • The best posters display a succint statement of major conclusions at the beginning, followed by supporting text and a brief summary at the end.
  • Utilize other techniques to improve the graphic impact. Use color to add emphasis and clarity. Simplicity, ease of reading, etc., are more important than artistic flair. Keep in mind that lighting may be dim inside large poster sessions, so make sure your contrasts and color combinations are easy to read.

Poster Competition

All authors of poster presentations have a chance to take part in the poster competition.

  • Your poster should be displayed during the whole conference
  • and you should be ready in front of your poster to answer all questions during the poster session on Wednesday evening.

Each conference participant will receive an “evaluating sticker” together with her/his name badge and will have an opportunity to appreciate one poster contribution.
